I'm sure that if Zim didn't have his firearm to protect himself and Martin was on trial for murdering Zimmerman, he wouldn't have a drop of sweat. What does that tell you?
Well... there is that pesky dead body people keep glossing over.

Zimmerman Trial Day 2 – Analysis of State’s Witnesses
Posted by Andrew Branca
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 9:04pm

Today can only be characterized as an utter debacle for the prosecution in Florida v. Zimmerman. Besides the testimony of a couple of highly professional law enforcement witnesses, the testimony of the the other State witnesses ranged from signing George Zimmerman’s praises, to acknowledging the utility of following a suspicious person from a distance, to being utterly discredited by razor sharp cross-examination of the defense.

Before we even get to the disaster that was the State’s witnesses, however, we first have to discuss this morning’s hearing and the extent to which it evanescent is the State’s case against George Zimmerman.

State: Zimmerman Is So Good, He Must Be Bad

Following on a disagreement between the parties yesterday, before the jury was seated the Court held a hearing on whether to admit into evidence a half-dozen or so calls made by Zimmerman to the police in the six months leading up to the shooting.

In each of the calls Zimmerman was playing the diligent Neighborhood Watch role, calling the non-emergency number (as trained) to report a suspicious person in the neighborhood. There is not the slightest suggestion of misconduct, ill will, hatred, etc. in any of the recordings.

You still harping on the pictures in the media from over a year ago? Do you really think that has anything to do with the murder of Trayvon?
Trayvon is the one who made the poor decision to turn it physical.

This is a lie. If a 911 call is warranted it means it is an emergency. You don't call someone else and ask them to call 911 for you. If that had happened, Zimmerman would not have been able to answer the 911 operator's questions.

Try again, this attempt was worthless.

As usual you do not know what you are talking about.

Zimmerman is the one who exited his vehicle and chased the unarmed boy down then shot him to death.

It was the routine for concerned residents and volunteers. They reported suspcious activity to George.

You must have missed the part where the lady testified that NW were not to be vigilantes but were to CALL 911 and let trained officers take check out any suspicious person.

Eyes and ears, not vigilantes.

Self-appointed, huh?
"Wendy Dorival, former coordinator of the Sanford Police Department's neighborhood watch program, testified how she had worked with Zimmerman to set up a watch in his neighborhood.
When asked by prosecutor John Guy if neighborhood watch participants should follow or engage with suspicious people, she said no.
"They are the eyes and ears of law enforcement," Dorival said. "They're not supposed to take matters into their own hands."
Similarly, Donald O'Brien, president of Zimmerman's homeowners association, said it was his understanding that neighborhood watch members are supposed to "stay at a safe distance" and "let the police handle it."
But Dorival said she was impressed with Zimmerman's professionalism and dedication to his community.
"He seemed like he really wanted to make changes in his community, to make it better," she said."
So? He appointed himself Neighborhood Watch captain.

According to an English study Pot kills brain cells as well as alcohol. Unless you are ill, and it can help with nausea, why would you use it?
